• uBlock Origin icon

    uBlock Origin

    uBlock Origin is the most efficient ad blocker of its kind. This will protect against malvertising, some malicious sites, corporate user tracking (to some extent) as well as speed up loading times and remove ads.

  • NoScript icon

    NoScript

    NoScript can block all scripts except for scripts whitelisted by the user or only scripts on selected sites as well as other security threats like XSS attacks and clickjacking. Blocking all scripts will break a lot of pages, so I have it set to allow all scripts and temporarily set it to block all scripts on less reputable websites. Some websites only use scripts to generate pop-up windows and NoScript is an excellent solution to that kind of aggressive and annoying advertising.

  • Privacy Badger icon

    Privacy Badger

    Privacy Badger is an add-on developed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) that blocks online trackers. While uBlock Origin also does this with the right filterlists, Privacy Badger uses behavioural heuristics and can therefore block trackers that are not in any filterlist yet.

  • Decentraleyes icon

    Decentraleyes

    Decentraleyes prevents tracking from major content delivery networks by blocking requests to those CDNs and replacing the files with local files to keep sites from breaking. Use both Decentraleyes and Load from Cache for the best results.

  • Load from Cache icon

    Load from Cache

    Load from Cache forces Firefox to load all requests from cache if the resource is in the cache already. This results in almost no CDN tracking, faster pageloads and less bandwidth usage. May cause problems with Flash content. Use both Decentraleyes and Load from Cache for the best results.

  • Self-Destructing Cookies icon

    Self-Destructing Cookies

    Self-Destructing Cookies automatically clears a site's cookies and local storage after the site has been closed. By default it does not work with sites that have been whitelisted via Firefox's settings, but that can be fixed by following the instructions on the add-on's Mozilla Add-ons page. I personally like to have cookies disabled on all sites except for whitelisted sites via Firefox's privacy settings.

    BetterPrivacy

    BetterPrivacy removes LSOs (Local Shared Objects, aka Flash cookies) when the browser is closed and can be set to automatically remove LSOs on set intervals. It will remove some things that Self-Destructing Cookies is unable to remove, so get both add-ons.

    Privacy Settings

    Privacy Settings let's you choose between five privacy modes for your Firefox settings: Privacy (compatible) & Security, Privacy (compatible), Privacy & Security, Full Privacy, and Defaults. Custom settings are also supported. Note that "Privacy (compatible)" and "Full Privacy" modes disable the Small Google Safe Browsing iconGoogle Safe Browsing anti-malware + anti-phishing web filter. I'd recommend "Privacy (compatible) & Security" if you want decent privacy and pages that are not broken.

  • Random Agent Spoofer icon

    Random Agent Spoofer

    Random Agent Spoofer is a Firefox add-on that spoofs the user agent headers on a regular interval that the user chooses. This makes browser fingerprinting harder to do for ad tracking companies. I have Random Agent Spoofer set to "Random (Desktop)" and to change the user agent for every request. Some websites will not function properly some of the time depending on the user agent (Google Drive, addons.mozilla.org) or all of the time (Slack, phpBB forums), but you can whitelist those sites or temporarily disable the add-on.

  • Flashblock icon

    Flashblock

    Installing Flashblock will automatically block all Adobe Flash Player content. A Flashblock icon will appear on areas of pages that use Adobe Flash Player. Clicking on that button will in some cases allow the user to view the Flash content and in other cases the user has to whitelist the site or temporarily turn off Flash blocking. Adobe Flash Player is infamous for security holes that have been exploited by hackers and malware developers in the past, so blocking Adobe Flash Player will not only reduce CPU usage from not having bloated Flash Player processes running but also protect the user against security holes in Adobe Flash Player. Flashblock will also block any Flash based ads that uBlock Origin hasn't already blocked. NoScript has Flash blocking fuctionality as well, but it doesn't have any whitelisting feature, so Flashblock is much more manageable.

  • Clean Links icon

    Clean Links

    Clean Links removes affiliate/tracking tags, converts obfuscated/nested links to genuine/normal plain clean links, and converts shortened links to the real links. Be sure to activate "Redirect Watcher" in the settings to enable the shortened link conversion. Personally I prefer to have "Highlight Cleaned Links?" disabled in the settings, so that the address bar won't flash yellow every time Clean Links cleans a link. Some pages link the Gmail login page can't forward you if you have Clean Links enabled, but then you can either whitelist the page via the settings or temporarily disable Clean Links by clicking on its icon to the right of the address bar.
